Even light flow leaks out the side of pads

9 months ago

Hello I discovered this community while searching for alternative pads shapes. I’ve had moderate urge incontinence my whole life (even as a child) but perimenopause has made it worse.

I can go through 5-6 pads a day (not including nights). But I’ve discovered my urine seems to change consistency every so often so that rather than being absorbed it just flows over the top and leaks out the sides onto my inner thighs and pant legs. This is even when I just have light leakage!

Has anyone found a product that has a guaranteed barrier against *side* leaks? Even the full underwear wouldn’t help because the leak is from the sides of the thin area between the thighs. I can’t repeatedly change clothes at work. I am so distressed!

Thank you!
